    Born to run.

    No pressure or anything, though.

Corrected and Free (!) Half-Marathon: Finish It Plan

Corrected and Free (!) Half-Marathon: Finish It Plan

Sarah and I read proofs of Train Like a Mother: How to Get Across Any Finish Line – and Not Lose Your Family, Job, or Sanity about 8,000 times. Or at least it felt like that. After about the third time of taking a magnifying glass to the text, which we’d already read, edited, read, edited, read, edited many times, I think our eyes just glazed over. Either that, or she trusted I was eagle-eyeing the training plans–and I was doing the same.

The result? A few typos. (Yeah, I know: like that’s a huge surprise. And guess what? Sometimes we raise our voices at our kids, too.) The most notable ones were in the Half-Marathon: Finish It plan, so we wanted to make amends as soon as possible…

Beep, Beep, Beep….

We’re having some technical difficulties over here at AMR; namely, the surprise we had cooked up for you today isn’t quite ready to come out of the oven. (Or more accurately, the oven door isn’t opening.)

So consider this short post a kick in the pants to get out the door, if you haven’t already today; or to check in for the AMR Challenge at AMR Connect; or to respond to us if you’re Karen who wrote the winning haiku for the Trek wheels; or to rest easy—if that’s what you have coming.

Happy miles on this Monday–and stay tuned!

A big step up from a tricycle, Karen

Wheeee! Trek Bike Grand Prize Winner

Is it just my husband, Jack, and me, or are other people utterly incapable of hearing the phrase, “circle of life,” without  bursting into Disney song?

Well, I guess if you were able to, um, refrain before, you might not be able to now.

Why, you ask, am I mentioning all of this before announcing the winner of a Trek 7.2 FX WSD? Because unlike our other giveaways, in which winners are chosen at random, this time wannabe-winners had to write a haiku about bike riding. We had more than 500 entries, from which we culled our favorite 30 or so. We then had a panel, including folks at Trek, vote on them…

Madlibs for Mother Runners: On a Long Run

Madlibs for Mother Runners: On a Long Run

[Another remnant from Train Like a Mother we found while cleaning up our offices the other day. Enjoy.]

My _____________________________ (a person) and I started running  ____________ (a number) minutes ago. The ________________________ (noun) is shining ____________________________ (adverb) so we are already quite ____________________________ (adjective). But we’re not worried because we brought ____________________________ (food) and ____________________________ (beverage) with us in our ____________________________ (plural noun) that we are wearing around our _________________________ (body part), so we’ll have plenty of fuel…

Follow This Mother!

Like so many women, Laura Moir, a 37-year-old mom of two in Oakland, California, got into running when she embarked on a plan of attack to lose baby weight. Along the way, she discovered the power of Team in Training. She was sporting the fundraiser’s signature purple on Sunday when she ran the Rock ‘N’ Roll San Diego Marathon. The race didn’t go as planned–she spent nearly 30 minutes in the medical tent near Mile 19. Here’s what she wrote on Daily Mile, “….seriously considered quitting. It took every last ounce of my physical and emotional strength to leave the tent and start run/walking again…
